In the Fox Valley area, pipefitters are primarily employed in the papermaking industry, though there are other businesses that require the installation, repair and servicing of pressure piping and similar equipment. A pipefitter will lay out, cut and bend pipes. You will learn how to install, test, maintain and repair high- or low-pressure piping systems. You’ll also learn how to cut, heat and bend metal. Your training will give you a thorough knowledge of pipe characteristics, particularly related to high or low pressure and chemicals. You’ll also learn the principles of hydraulics and gain welding and soldering skills. All this is accomplished through four years of on-the-job training and classroom instruction.
